What is Okta?
Okta is a cloud service that allows developers to create, edit, and securely store user accounts and data, as well as connect them to one or more apps. You can use our API to do the following:
- Authenticate and authorize your users
- Store data about your users
- Perform password-based and social login
- Secure your application with multi-factor authentication
